We took cereal and got milk from the traders after our morning loo stop. 
 

we took loads of snacks but didn’t eat most of them, so reducing the amount we take next year. 
 

one thing for out and about was flapjacks we took the OTE sports ones as I know that they work when my digestive system is under stress.

I only took nuts and cereal bars last year and still ended up bringing most back...

Totally second the "only cover breakfast" sentiment as the food stalls are pretty reasonable price wise, and fantastic quality wise for the most part.

Stopped bothering with food, it only ever seems to come back with me.

Brew kit so I can have a coffee first thing without having to go wandering is now a must have though.

Yeah food last year was basically a complete waste. Might bring one pack of protein bars or something this year. Only feel like I need about 2 meals a day over the festival anyway.

I just cover breakfast. This is more to save on dealing with the queues when I'm hungry. I tend to freeze bacon in meal size portions before I leave and that usually lasts until Sunday.

I'm also going to get an aeropress I think.

There's something pretty perfect about coffee and a bacon sarnie in the tent first thing...

I'll also take some munchies just to have in my day sack, so crisps, haribo, trackers. I eat like 10-year-old when I'm at the festival.

Taking food is more trouble than it’s worth, though we do take a single burner and kettle to make tea and heat water for face cloth flannels. And a few snacks. 

So its pringles, wagon wheels, beer and Imodium.

Do it, they're great. I have three - one at home, one at work and one for travel! 🙂

Does Berocca count as good? 

Depends on which cider you put it in

A 14 litre Sous Vide and a 1200kva generator usually does the job. 

Lobster tails last in the freezerbox for 24 hours.

Almost nothing. Just booze.

Save on weight and space and use the Co-Op.

It's a game changer.

No more lugging in enough mixers for a week.

Try not bothering with water and having one like a sweetie instead.

Orange foam coming from your nostrils is quite the sight to behold.

I heard that this was quite bad for your teeth. Something to do with the high acid content in the un-fizzed tablets... May just be an old wives tale though...

Oh it's not a regular habit by any stretch. More of an "I wonder what this would be like?" moments.

Full disclosure: it's not pleasant.
